McAlmont & Butler - Speed
Upon hearing Speed, McAlmont & Butler's then record company, EMI, weren't too happy. The track resulted in them being dropped and only now, three years later, has it been picked up for release through Rough Trade. One can assume the cloth-eared suits thought it didn't sound enough like Coldplay, for this is a decent, rather soulful tune. Against a slow drumbeat and lush backing, David McAlmont's voice soars beautifully. So kind of what you'd expect, if more subdued than Yes. Be glad Speed was rescued.
